' REPORT OF THE 

Superintendent of Schools. 



To the School Committee : 

The fourth annual report of the superintendent of schools 
is herewith submitted. It is the sixth of this department 
under district supervision. The customary tabulated state- 
ment for the school year 1906-7 is supplemented by the 
statistics to February, 1908. Your attention is also invited to 
the school calendar, and the reports of the supervisors of 
drawing and of vocal music. I trust that the entire report 
may prove of interest, not only to you, but also to the body of 
intelligent, public-spirited citizens of whom you are the 
chosen representatives. 

According to the calculations based on years of observa- 
tion of American urban and rural schools, it has been estimated 
that twenty per cent of the teachers of the average community 
have to be replaced each year. The factors entering into this 
migratory process are sickness, change of occupation, incom- 
petence, marriage, and professional advancement, the last of 
which is the greatest in this town, as in many another, and 
must be reckoned with always as a forceful economic factor 
in school systems which offer only annual tenure of office to 
school workers. At the close of the last summer vacation 
iifty-seven per cent of the teachers in this town resigned. 
Miss Willcutt, who had taught the center primary since 



Thanksgiving only, was succeeded by Miss Julia V. Sartwell 
of Hadley. At North Dana, Miss Day of the intermediate, 
and Miss Howlett of the grammar room were succeeded, 
respectively, by Miss Fannie Watson of Williamsburg and 
Miss Sarah A. Douglas of Springfield. On account of Miss 
Howlett's long service and marked efficiency, her loss was 
particularly regretted. Mrs. Lucy A. Gatchell of Hartford, 
Conn., who substituted for our supervisor of drawing in 1905, 
was elected to succeed Miss Goodenough. Mrs. Gatchell has 
also the supervision of this work in the schools of Greenwich 
and Prescott. 

Too much praise cannot be given our conscientious teach- 
ers for the efforts they have put forth and the work they have 
accomplished. Their readiness to receive suggestions and 
act upon the same deserves hearty commendation. The live 
teacher creates a living spirit in the school room. The quick 
active spirit, the helpful teacher, the one who is alive to the 
various conditions and temperaments of those under her care 
will have that influence which produces a broader view of life 
among her pupils and inspires them to become men and 
women who will understand their -proper relation to society. 
We need men and women today who see things in their right 
relations, and nowhere can this be more thoroughly taught 
than in the schoolroom. The book teacher, the teacher with- 
out sympathy, the teacher who cares more for the subject to 
be taught than for what she sees in the jmpil, the one who 
has no aim excej)t what she sees in the subject, — such a 
teacher can exert no permanent influence of highest value. 
The teacher must keep in touch with the young life around 
her, must know its thinking, its ways of attack, must be alert 
and ready to meet this life at every turn, and to help these 
growing boys and girls to find themselves and to become use- 
ful members of society. To do this requires of a teacher a 



69 

broad preparation and constant effort to keep abreast of things, 
not only in her profession but also in the life of the community 
as well as in the activities of the world at large. We must 
have such teachers in our schools, else the comnmnity is not 
getting the results which it ought to expect. Are we alive to 
what these results should be? Does the community fully 
comprehend what it expects? To make good schools, to keep 
good teachers (and good schools cannot be mantained without 
good teachers) — this means ample remuneration. At all times 
the school is the mirror which reflects the teacher as she is. 

The union graduation of the grammar schools was held at 
Good Templars' Hall in North Dana on the evening of June 7, 
1!)07. Five graduates from the North school and three from 
the Center received their diplomas. The class roll follows : 
Fred Ricard, Ethel Chelifoux, George Downey, Hattie Belle 
Doane, Robert Downey, Clara Fraser, Leon Cooley, Hazel 
Cooley. 

Two of this class entered the Petersham high school ; one 
each the Mt. Hermon school at Northfield, the Fitchburg, 
Orange and New Salem high school ; and two found it 
necessary to go to work. 

Every town in the state is required by law to establish a 
system of medical inspection in its schools. The law is very 
general in its terms and it is probably an advantage that its 
terms are not more specific. Without sufficient experience as 
a ba-is for legislation, a more specific State law might impose 
hardships upon some towns while being insufficiently dras'ic 
to compel adequate inspection in other places. Dr. Stephen 
Witt is the medical inspector for the schools of this town, and 
the results of his work will be tabulated and forwarded by the 
superintendent to the State Board of Education. The special 
appropriation required for this purpose should be large enough 
to provide for inspection worthy of the name. Too little 



70 

t inay prove to be wasted. On the other 
hand, in view of the experimental nature of the work, I 
appropriation may properly be less than the town will gladly 
make when medical inspection shall ha aonstrated its 

llness. If the medical inspectors, aided by the teachers 
acting under their direction, succeed every year in saving one 

_:g life or in averting the spread of one contagious dise 
the town will not count it a hardship to contribute a few 
dollars to a result so beneficial and humane. 

Under a riu formulated by the State Board of Health 
>ight and hearing tests have been given in the schools of 
this town. The result of thest ate is shown below :

at on^ 

Teacher 

1 



A full description of these tests is not possible within the 
limits of this report. It is sufficient to notice that they do not 
require expert knowledge on the part of the teachers who 



71 

make them, and that the teachers are to make no effort to 
write prescriptions for the relief of pupils who suffer from 
defective vision or hearing. The tests are simple but are 
sufficiently accurate to determine the fact of defects. With 
this discovery, followed by prompt notice to the parents of 
the afflicted children, the responsibility of the teacher ceases. 
Great good is likely to result from the operation of the statute 
which imposes upon every town the duty of making these tests. 

One of the fundamental aims in modern education is the 
development of the child in a way to fit him to live happily 
and profitably in the community — to develop his social effi- 
ciency. The times are distinctly practical, and the instruction 
and training in the schools must be such that the needs and 
demands of an ever expanding social requirement shall be 
met. The importance of manual training as part of public 
school work is becoming generally recognized and in the 
larger towns some form of manual training is required by law. 
The chief factor in leading the people to see the need of train- 
ing the hands of children in the schools is the difficulty of 
giving that training elsewhere. Home life today is so complex 
that neither father nor mother, as a rule, has time to teach 
the child how to use his hands, and so this duty, like many 
other duties that formerly received the attention of parents, 
must now be delegated to the schools or it will not receive 
any adequate attention. Much of the initial work in the 
departments of sloyd, knife work, metal working, basketry, 
sewing, leather working, etc., spring as natural corrollaries 
from the industrial and mechanical drawing now required to 
be done in the grammar grades of the schools. The subject 
is rapidly becoming established in the public confidence and 
its scope is being constantly enlarged as its beneficent influence 
is seen and appreciated. 

All citizens who see further than the surface of things, 



72 

agree with President Eliot when he says, "The function of the 
pubiic schools remains by far the most important municipal 
function in our country." Such citizens are therefore inter- 
ested in matters affecting the schools, and I trust they may 
read this report. The closest inspection of the schools 
themselves in actual session is earnestly invited. 

The loyal co-operation of my associates and the helpful 
suggestions of parents and others, are again gratefully 
acknowledged. 

Respectfully submitted, 

LOUIS A. PRATT, 

Superintendent of Schools. 



REPOKT OF THE 

Supervisor of Vocal Music. 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

The study of music in the public schools of Dana during 
the past year, has been pursued under the same methods and 
along the same lines as during previous years. The children 
manifest a lively interest in the subject, and work with the 
best of spirit. 

Each child sings at sight, individually, exercises for 
developing the power of leading music and the art of tone 
production. He also does the required amount of written 
work, such as major and minor scale writing, signature writ- 
ing, naming of keys, and locating the key note, and, in the 
primary grades, simple copying. I can truly say that every 
normal child in or above fourth grade can read music written 
in any and all of the fifteen major and minor keys, providing 
that music contains no principle not taught to his grade. The 
second and third grades can do the same if the location of the 
key note is designated. 

The chorus of each school compares favorably with any 
school of similar grades and conditions. The influence of the 
chorus singing is but partially recognized, from the fact that 
so few people really hear the children sing the songs, which 
they iearn and render with expression and artistic finish. The 
profoundest thoughts of the poets united with the most sub- 



74 

lime harmonies of the master composers, become a powerful 
influence upon the normal character of a child, and arouse 
within him all the highest and noblest sentiments, patriotism, 
justice, honor, reverence and love. Does the study of music, 
then, bring anything of real value to the pupils? No one can 
deny, with reason, that from this training they receive a 
knowledge and influence of priceless worth. There is no 
study in the school curriculum which compares with it as a 
refining and ennobling influence. 

The children love music, and from the lessons derive a vast 
amount of pleasure. For these reasons I have nothing but 
good to report concerning the past year's work. To the 
teachers who have worked most efficiently and faithfully, and 
to all interested in this branch of school work, the writer 
desires to express her gratitude. 

Respectfully, 

S. MAUDE AMSDEN. 



REPORT OF THE 

Supervisor of Drawing. 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I submit a report of the art work for this year. The 
plan for the year's study is as follows : 

September and October are devoted to the study of fall 
growths, flowers, fruits and vegetables. 

November and December give opportunity for design and 
constructive work appropriate to the season, including Christ- 
mas gifts. 

January and February a study is made of type forms and 
objects based upon same, involving foreshortening and per- 
spective. 

March and April follow with pose, printing, and design, 
completing the year by further nature study through May and 
June. 

Mention may be made of the visit in November by the 
State Supervisor of Drawing, Mr. Burnham, and his commen- 
dation of the work done in the several schools" 

In general the pupils are thoroughly interested in art study 



76 

and with the co-operation and faithful efforts of the teachers, 
very good results have been attained. 

Hearty thanks are due the teachers and school officials for 
their helpfulness and interest m this branch of the school 
work. 

Respectfully, 

LUCY A. GATCHELL.

Dana Library. 



Total number of books in library year ending Feb. 5, 1523 
Number of books taken out during year, 1426 

New cards, 12 

New books added during the year, 28 volumes 

Received from library commission, 25 volumes 

Received from state, including all reference books, 25 volumes 

The library has been well patronized during the year, as 
our record shows 1426 books let out, being in excess of other 
years. Miss Alice Chandler, one of the board of library com- 
missioners, visited us in the spring, and advised letting out 
more than one book to a patron, and for a longer time, three 
weeks making a difference to the distance from library. This 
has been favorably accepted, more especially in vacation of 
school, when children cannot get here from a distance. 

Respectfully, 

susan e. stp:vens, 

Librarian and Trustee.

REPORT OF THE 

Superintendent of Schools. 



To the School Committee of Dana: 

It gives me pleasure to submit to you, and through you to 
the citizens of your town, my first annual report, the same 
being the seventh in the series of superintendent's reports 
for this union. The appended statistics are for the year 
closing last June, while the accompanying remarks cover only 
a period of seven months, from the first of last July to the 
present time. 

I assume we are agreed that a report of this nature is not 
a fitting place for the discussion of pedagogical principles or 
methods of teaching. A plain statement of the plans already 
adopted to improve the work of the schools, followed by a 
brief discussion of their most pressing needs, constitutes, in 
my judgment, the true essence of such a report as is here 
desired. 

After an intensive study of the situation, it seemed to 
your superintendent, that the greatest need was an attempt to 
"grade" the schools, that is, to insist that each pupil be doing 
the same year's work in all subjects of a sequential nature. 
To this end, a course of study was made out, printed, and 
placed in the hands of each teacher. This course of study 
indicates clearly just what work a pupil in a given grade is 
supposed to do in every subject. In order to determine that 



68 

the work done actually conforms to the course of study, each 
teacher is required, at the end of every month, to make a de- 
tailed report of the work done by each pupil during the pre- 
ceding month. This report is made out on a blank especially 
provided for the purpose, and fastened in the back of the 
register. On examining these reports, it is an easy matter to 
discover any essential variation between them and the course 
of study. These reports thus make a permanent and detailed 
record of the work done by each grade for the entire school 
year, or such jwrtion of the year as has expired. Left in the 
desk at the end of the year, they greatly facilitate the effort 
of the next teacher in getting a comprehensive idea of the 
situation of her pupils in the various studies. Similarly, if 
there is a change of teachers during the year, they are of 
great assistance to the incoming teacher. They may be also 
used by the superintendent on visiting the school, as the basis 
of a brief oral examination of any of the classes. 

In order to still further emphasize the desirability of a 
reasonable degree of uniformity, and to arouse a proper feel- 
ing of emulation, a written examination was given at the end 
of the fall term to all the schools in the union. This exam- 
ination was exactly the same in all the schools, was made out 
by the superintendent, and the papers marked and results 
tabulated by him. These results, averaging as they did all 
the way from 52 to 87 per cent, clearly proved the existence 
of great inequalities in the work. Nor was it true, as might 
have been anticipated, that the towns with the more highly 
organized school systems were able to show more satisfactory 
results than those towns in which the conditions were apj:>arently 
less favorable. On the contrary, the town of New Salem where 
the conditions are purely rural, led all the other towns in the 
union by a substantial margin. The results, in detail, were 
read to each school, and both pupils and teachers urged to 



61) 

use their best efforts to make a better showing in the next 
examination, which, it is planned, shall be given about the 
middle of February. 

Two general teachers' meetings have been held in North 
Dana, one on the 19th of September, and the other on the 
23d of January. At the first of these, Mr. A. W. Clark, 
representative of Ginn & Co., gave an interesting and instruc- 
tive address on penmanship. It is planned to hold two more 
such meetings before the close of the year, and arrangements 
have been made with Mr. J. E. Warren, Agent of the State 
Board of Education, for a Teachers' Institute some time 
during the spring term. 

When the superintendent visits a school, it is desirable 
that he should do something more than sit around for an hour 
or so, look wise, and then drive off to the next. He should 
have some definite plans which will make his work effective. 
It has been my practice to write my observations on the dis- 
cipline and work of the school on the pages of a note book 
especially provided for the purpose, and which is kept in the 
teacher's desk. These observations, favorable or otherwise, 
then become the basis of a personal conversation between the 
superintendent and teacher, either at recess or after school. 
Not infrequently, I have, with the teacher's permission, taken 
a class that happened to be reciting and proceeded with the 
lesson, the better to illustrate to the teacher, the proper 
application of some principle or method of teaching. I have 
also made it a practice to speak to the pupils on such general 
topics as would broaden their minds, and, if possible, lead 
them to higher and nobler ideals. A report of each visit 
made by the superintendent has been immediately sent to the 
chairman of the school committee. This report states the 
duration of the visit, gives a list of supplies delivered and 
ordered, and contains notes on the general condition of the 



70 

school. These various lines of work, together with the dis- 
tribution of books and supplies, individual conversations with 
committees, parents, and pupils, answering correspondence, 
and attending to the minor details of the office, have 
constituted the bulk of nry efforts, and taken the most of my 
time. 

I wish to call your attention to the matter of Medical 
Inspection in the schools. This topic was ably treated in the 
]ast report of my predecessor, but it does not seem to have 
aroused the degree of interest to which its importance would 
seem to entitle it. Many of our boys and girls are suffering 
from curable diseases without anyone being in the least aware 
of the fact. To discover such diseases, and make proper 
report to the parent is one of the principal duties of the 
medical inspector. The law, of course, does not go beyond 
this, but assumes that the parent will be glad to act on expert 
medical advice when furnished gratuitously. This, however, 
is not always the case, and many times the real purpose of 
the law is defeated by the inexplicable neglect of parents to 
heed the warning. The teachers are supposed to attend to 
that part of the law which provides for an eye and ear test 
and to notify parents upon blanks provided for the purpose, 
if any defect in these organs is found. If all or any part of 
this Act results in saving the life, health, or happiness of your 
boy or girl, you will, no doubt, appreciate the usefulness of 
the statute. Following is a report of the Eye and Ear Test 
given by the teachers : 

Number of pupils examined, 99. 

Number with defective eyesight, 16. 

Number with defective hearing, 4. 

Number of parents notified, 18. 

The North Dana grammar school has been particularly 

unfortunate in the frequent change of teachers to which it 



71 

has been subjected since the beginning of school in the fall. 
It should be made clear that these changes cannot be consid- 
ered to be the fault of either the school, the teachers them- 
selves, or the school authorities. Miss Christel Piatt, who 
began the school in September, taught but a short time when 
she received an unexpected and imperative call from her 
mother in Oregon. Her successor, Mr. W. I. Cummings, 
resigned to accept a very good position in Waltham, and Miss 
Ina Pratt was appointed in his stead. After teaching two 
weeks, she resigned to accept a position as critic teacher in a 
Pennsylvania Normal School. Miss Helen Whitney of Gard- 
ner, a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, and a successful 
and experienced teacher, was then appointed to the position, 
and still continues as the teacher of the school. It should be 
understood that all the teachers mentioned are exceptionally 
strong in discipline, that the spirit of the school has remained 
excellent, and that the work has been all that could be ex- 
pected under the circumstances. Had there been a single 
weak teacher in the whole series, the school would have 
inevitably gone to pieces. If any one feels, that this may, 
after all, have been the result, he is cordially invited to visit 
the school, and ascertain the facts by personal observation. 

With the co-operation of the H. W. Goodman Company, a 
"no school" signal has been arranged for the schools of North 
Dana village. On days when, in the judgment of the school 
committee, weather conditions are such as to render their 
attendance harmful or impracticable, the children will be 
directed to remain at home by three blasts of the whistle at 
15 minutes after 8 o'clock in the morning. 

The time is not far distant when it will be necessary to 
purchase some new furniture for the schools. Practically all 
of the desks are much the worse for wear, and many of them 
are scarcely fit for use. Especially is this true in the North 



72 



Dana Intermediate school. I would respectfully recommend 
that the Committee take this matter under advisement, and 
hope that early action will be possible. 

A report of this nature would be incomplete without grateful 
recognition of the unfailing- courtesy shown me by pupils, 
teachers, committees, and parents. Without perfect harmony 
between these elements of the school system, the highest 
degree of success cannot be attained. Nor would I fail to 
acknowledge the efficient work of the two gentlemen who act 
as janitors in our two school buildings, and who have, by 
their kindness of heart, taken upon themselves the additional 
duties of caretakers to the children. The town is fortunate 
in its servants. 



Respectfully submitted, 



G. ALVIN GROVER, 
Superintendent of Schools. 



REPORT OF THE 

Supervisor of Music. 



Mr. Grocer, Superintendent of Schools: 

In accordance with your request, the annual report on 
music of the public schools of Dana is presented. 

Your supervisor of music attended the Institute of Musical 
Pedagogy, held in Northampton during the summer of nine- 
teen hundred and eight, where she observed the work of some 
of the foremost instructors of public school music, and was 
pleased to note that the course of study prescribed by the 
faculty of this institution was substantially the same as that 
pursued in the Dana schools. 

The plan of work this year has been similar to that of 
previous years and the children have responded with the same 
interest and enthusiasm which has characterized their work 
throughout all grades. The pupils of the primary grades 
learn many rote songs, rendering them in a pleasing manner. 
In the intermediate grades the power of reading music is 
developed greatly so that the pupils enter the grammar grades 
with a foundation knowledge of musical terms and technic, 
which equips them for interpreting their choruses intelligently 
and artistically. 

The Fourth Reader of the New Educational Music Course, 
in use in the North Dana grammar school, contains some of 
the most beautiful selections known to the musical world.

Among its pages are found arrangements of the works of such 
masters as Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Schumann, 
Handen, Handel and many other composers of high rank. 
These selections intermingled with folk songs, patriotic songs 
and the best hymns of the nation are thoroughly enjoyed by 
the boys and girls, as one would readily see should he be 
present during the music period. 

With a feeling of gratitude to you, Mr. Grover, and to the 
school authorities for counsel and support, and to the teachers 
for their faithful and energetic work this report is submitted by 



S. MAUDE AMSDEX, 

Super visor of Music. 



REPOKT OF THE 

Supervisor of Drawing. 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

Last year the work was confined entirely to drawing, 
This year one half the time has been given to various forms 
of manual training. 

The simpler forms of raffia work have been taught, 
including plain winding, button hole stitch, weaving and 
knotting. Also many construction problems and the first 
principles of bookbinding, all of which could be taught with 
but little added expense for material. 

This vear's schedule will include instruction in the method 
of stenciling and wood block printing. These forms of hand 
training teach the pupils habits of neatness and accuracy, 
arouse the greatest interest, and a large majority get good 
results. While the value of the training to mind, eye and 
hand w r hich the drawing gives, is of no less value to the 
majority, the results, in the way of good papers seen in ex- 
hibits, are generally the work of the gifted few. Many of 
the forms of work taught this year, have laid a foundation, 
which, followed by further study, would prove sources of 
lucrative employment. A skilled worker in basketry, design 
or book binding commands a good salary. 

Thorough appreciation is felt of the faithful efforts of the 
teachers and the hearty co-operation of the school officials. 

Respectfully, 

LUCY A. GATCHELL.

I have examined the foregoing accounts and find them 
correct. 

L. CLAYTON GROVER, 

Auditor. 



REPORT OF THE 

Superintendent of Schools. 



It gives me pleasure to submit to you, and through you to 
the citizens of your town, my second annual report. 

In the school year ending last June 143 different pupils 
were registered in your schools. The average membership 
was 110.5, the average attendance 100.1 and the per cent of 
attendance 90.6. This per cent is slightly below the average 
for the state, due, probably, to the prevalence of contagious 
diseases, especially at Dana Center. All things considered, it- 
is my belief that the attendance may be considered satisfactory. 

Miss Helen Whitney, who taught the North Dana Gram- 
mar school during the spring, resigned at the end of the year, 
and her place has been filled by the appointment of Miss 
Mabel Marshall, whose work is most satisfactory. Miss Char- 
lotte Stewart was appointed to the vacancy in the Intermedi- 
ate school caused by Mrs. Fuller's resignation, and Miss Ruby 
Cowing has filled the position in the Primary school made 
vacant by Miss Archibald's resignation. At the Center, both 
Miss Batehelder and Miss Sartwell resigned, and the positions 
were rilled by the appointment of Miss Edith Brown to the 
Grammar school and Miss Dorothy Bristol to the Primary 
school. 

Miss Maud Amsden, who has for several years served so 
acceptably as supervisor of music, found it impossible to 
remain with us, and Mrs. Lucy Gatchell, the drawing super- 



65 

visor, secured a better position in Connecticut. Miss Edith 
Cummings was appointed to Miss Amsden's position, and Miss 
Ina Calef to that made vacant by Mrs. Gatchell's resignation. 
Thus it will be seen that an entire change of the teaching and 
supervising force has been effected, — a somewhat unusual 
procedure, and one not calculated to simplify school problems. 
The schools of the town, however, aie undoubtedly doing 
better work than a year ago, in spite of this handicap. Three 
of the live teachers now in the employ of the town are gradu- 
ates of Normal schools, while the other two are particularly 
well adapted, both by nature and experience, to the tasks that 
they have undertaken. 

I have made 94 visits to your schools during the year that 
has passed. I have observed the methods of teaching and, 
when necessary, have made suggestions tending to improve- 
ment. It has been my endeavor to secure reasonably good 
attendance, to see that the schools are properly supplied with 
books and other material necessary tor their work, to encourage, 
enthuse and assist both teachers and pupils whenever possible. 
In all this I have had the sympathy and co-operation of the 
school committee, and their help is gratefully acknowledged. 

In severing my connection with your schools and going to 
another field of activity, I shall carry with me many pleasant 
memories of the people of Dana. 



Respectfully submitted, 

G. ALVIN GROVER, 

Superintendent of Schools. 



REPORT OF THE 

Supervisor of Music. 



Mr. G. A. Graver, Superintendent of Schools: 

The aim of music in the public schools is to give every 
child the mental discipline attainable through the subject. 
T qualify the child to recognize the beautiful in music and 
to receive its influence in the character. 

Music when properly taught and studied demands the 
exercise of more mental faculties than any other subject. 
The sight translation of a page of music requires a thorough 
knowledge of the fundamental principles, highly developed 
powers of concentration, the ability to make quick decisions, 
and a will power under perfect control. 

Since the opening of the Dana schools in September, the 
pupils have received instruction under the "Weaver system. 
The individual sight singing series have been used in all the 
grades, two of these lessons each week and one record taken 
on a sheet provided for this purpose. During the individual 
singing lessons a certain amount of written work is required. 
By the close of the school year the pupils will have taken 
three examinations, thus showing their ability to put into 
written form their knowledge of this subject. 

Although we h:ive spent much time on individual work, 
both oral and written, yet we have not neglected the song 
work. New music books have been provided for the intermedi- 
ate room at North Dana and srraimuar room at Dana center. 



67 

The upper grades at North Dana are preparing a cantata 
"The Golden Circle of Time," which they will present in the 
early spring. 

The first two grades read exercises in all of the fifteen 
keys, but keynote is designated by a cross. Above the second 
the key signatures are used. 

From fourth grade up we have taken chromatics and 
principles of time. 

The pupils have shown a fine spirit toward the music, and 
I feel that much credit is due my predecessor. 

In closing I wish to express my thanks to Mr. Grover and 
the committee for their support and interest, and to the 
teachers for their faithful efforts and co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDITH E. CUMMINGS, 

Supervisor of Music. 



REPORT OF THE 

Supervisor of Drawing. 



Mr. G. A. Grover, Superintendent of School* : 

Dear Sir: — The work in drawing, so far, has followed 
this plan, laid out for the year : 

Nature drawing during September and October. Color 
work, with construction and design work pertaining to Thanks- 
giving and Christmas, in November and December. 

Object drawing and perspective through January and 
February. 

Constructive and decorative work in March and April. 

Nature drawing again in May and June. 

The children seem interested in the work and most of 
them try hard to do what is given them to do. Considering 
this, good results may be expected. 

I thank the teachers and the superintendent for their co- 
operation and support in carrying on my work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

INA M. CALEF.

SPRING TERM, NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TEN. 

When it was announced to me at about "high twelve," 
that a majority of votes cast by the joint committee for super- 
intendent of schools for Dana district was in my favor, and I 
w T as asked "When will you be ready to begin work?" nry reply 
was, "As soon as I can eat my dinner." 

The schools of the town I found to be in session under the 
following teachers: 

North Primary, Miss Ruby M. Cowing 

North Intermediate, Miss Charlotte E. Stewart 

North Grammar, Miss Mabel Marshall 



U6 



Center Primary, 
Center Grammar, 
Supervisor of music, 
Supervisor of drawing - , 



Miss E. Dorothea Bristol 

Mrs. M. L. Hamilton 

Miss Edith E. Cummings 

Miss lua M. Calef 



The work of supervision was taken up where my predeces- 
sor laid it down, and was carried to the end of the term with- 
out any material innovations. The schools were in excellent 
condition and doing good work. The course of study under 
which the teachers were progressing was a good one. The 
schools continued through the term of twelve weeks uninter- 
rup eclly, closing the year with as marked success as could 
reasonably be expected. The programs of the graduation 
exercises are found elsewhere. 

Friday, April 1 5th, State Agent, J. E. Warren, and Prin. 
F. F. Murdock, North Adams Normal, visited our schools, and 
in the evening addressed a goodly gathering of our citizens 
upon the subject, "Agriculture iu Rural Schools." 

NEW TEACHERS. 

It hurts a school to change its teacher, if she is only a 
fairly good one, even at the end of the year. The changes 
that occurred at the beginning of the school year in Septem- 
ber were from necessity and not "for cause." All the teach- 
ers were unanimously re-elected, but the three at the North 
Village declining to remain with us longer, Miss Lura A. 
Sargent, Tilton, N. H., was selected for the primary room ; 
Miss Edith C. Hunt, Chester, for the intermediate position ; 
Miss Daisy L. Call, Colrain, a successful instructor of several 
years' expeuenee, was made principal of the building and 
teacher of the grammar grades. 

Coming to our service as entire strangers to one another 
these ladies soon proved to be "congenial spirits," among 
whom not the least friction has arisen, and against any one of 



67 

whom the first intimation of a complaint has yet to reach me. 
The town of Dana is fortunate in having such an excellent 
corps of teachers, and two janitors who know how to take 
care of schoolhouses ; it is at least certain that you never had 
better. 

DRAWING AND MUSIC. 

I wish to commend the work that is going on in these two 
subjects where we have special teachers. With the exception 
of the "three R's," no school studies are of more importance, 
in my estimation. We shall not make "artists," probably, in 
either of the^e branches of study, but nothing contributes 
more to the refinement and enjoyment of life. When the 
teachers are interested, as in each instance they now are, the 
progress of the pupils is apparent; otherwise it is up-hill 
work for all concerned. 

I have never heard better singing in any elementary 
schools than in some of those in this town. The cantata, 
"Golden Circle of Time," given b}' the pupils of the North 
schools, May 5th, was rendered in a really artistic manner, 
and deserved a larger audience than was present. 

INTRODUCTIONS. 

No committee ever makes a change in textbooks for the 
mere sake of changing. There never was a time when so 
many successful men and women in the teaching profession 
were studying to perfect "the tools" of education as well as 
its methods; consequently, textbooks have never been made 
so attractive, and so well adjusted to the unfolding minds of 
the little people as they are to-day. 

Fairbanks Home Geography has been put into the IV 
grade as a "starter" in that subject ; "Number by Develop- 
ment" introduces the child "to figures" by causing him to see 



and handle objects, thus making the work something besides 
mere words; "the Palmer Systt f Penmanship" puts the 
pupil in line with the prevailing slant style and the "muscular 
movement" taught in all commercial schools; the "Aldine 
I hod" of learning to read makes the greatest task of the 
beginner at school both delightful and expeditious : the facts 
of history are unchangeable, but ;vays of statin _ these 
and painting the pictures in words attractive are another 
thing. Lanca- - England"' pi - to be an interesting

VOTED BY THE SCHOOL BOARD. 

One of the first things a stranger ol in connection 

with the very nice schoolhouse at t: :h Tillage, is its 

limited playground. It is a pity when we live in a locality 
where there is so much land surrounding us, that the chil- 
tion yard should be limited to about eleven square 
:i pupil ; there is no room for ball and most other games 
that boys like to play. To "relieve the situation" a bit, two 
s have been set up in each of the t olyarda : 

the town, and some swings will be i soon as "the 

ground opens. WeU-eqnipped playgrounds are preventative 
of lawlessness, and less expensive than reformatory institut- 
ing held Aug _ th, it was voted to close the 
afternoon session- is only in a fe -back" 

towns : i part of the State that the sessions 

of yore" run from 9 to 12. and from 1 to 4. It that 

the teachers, who put in ten or more hours each day. give this 
last half -hour towards preparation for teaching their pupils 
and holding them attentively to their work than it is that the 
mind-tired children fill up the time in li~ ss. 

Another step in the right direction is thi- • -Entrance 

pupils under the school-age limit shall be admitted on: 



69 

the beginning of the school year in September, and not then 
unless the child is nearer six than five years of age." 

TEACHERS' MEETINGS. 

i 

Presumably, your former superintendents held teachers' 
meetings. The small number of teachers in each of the sev- 
eral towns of the district and the difficulty of getting them 
together, has led me to adopt a different course. On the Sat- 
urday following the beginning of each term, it is my purpose 
to hold a meeting of the teachers and committees of the dis- 
trict. We have had two such gatherings, the first at North 
Dana, September 10, and the second at Millington, January 14. 

At each meeting we intend to have two speakers from 
"outside," some teaching exercises, a display of pupils' work 
from each school, and such "suggestions for the good of the 
order," by the superintendent, as time permits. The two 
meetings we have held were both enjoyable and profitable. 
All interested in the work of the schools and the public wel- 
fare are always most cordially invited to attend and to share 
in the exercises. 

ATTENDANCE. 

The most discouraging feature about some schools is an 
habitual low per cent of attendance. Most teachers realize 
that the register of the school is the thermometer that records 
her ability as a teacher to the eye of the stranger at least. 
Sometimes it is impossible for the teacher, however good, to 
overcome the indifference of parents as to the desirableness 
of the regular attendance of their children. 

During the spring term a school in one of "the remote 
corners" of the district had only two half-day absent marks, 
no one tardy, three dismissed. What was possible in this 
school should be possible in every school of this town. A 
death in the family, and real sickness of the pupil are the 



70 

only valid excuses for absence. A year ago a law was enacted 
requiring thrift to be taught in the schools of the state ; 
every one will concede that punctuality is an essential element 
of thrift, and that the youth or the adult who is often absent 
from his work, or tardy in meeting his obligations is not 
usually thrifty. 

The per cent of attendance marks the "value received" 
for the money expended ; if the per cent is 90, it means that 
out of every dollar expended ten cents have been wasted, or 
lost, or thrown away. 

At the beginning of each month an attendance sheet is 
made up, on which record of each school in the district is 
compared with every other school of the town, and also of the 
district; it has awakened no little interest among the different 
schools. 

INDUSTKIAL LINES. 

There is no topic that so much absorbs the thought and 
speech of educators, and is of so much interest to every in- 
dividual of the community, '-at home and abroad," as the 
topic of industrial educaiion. It has already become a gen- 
erally accepted idea "that industrial training is properly a 
part of public school education, and, as such, should receive 
the attention and support of the State." How best to carry 
out this idea, how "to articulate industrial training with the 
present school public school system, to modify the course of 
study in elementary and high schools, while preserving the 
essential elements of the present system," is what educators 
are studying. 

Efforts towards this adjustment are to be seen in some of 
the rural schools about us ; some work in sewing shown by two 
schools at the Millington meeting commanded the commen- 
dation of those present. State Agent Warren says, "Among 



71 

the results clearly in evidence at this time of the attempts to 
emphasize in school some of the fundamentals of life are : 

Better attendance. 

More rapid progress in regular studies. 

Greater public interest in the schools. 

Added respect for woman's work, agriculture, and manual 
labor." 

In conclusion, I wish to make public record of my sincere 
thanks for the uniform courtesy, the cordial support, and the 
hearty co-operation given to me by the committee, the teach- 
ers, and the good people of Dana. I appreciate it, coming 
among you an entire stranger ; it is my desire, and will be my 
constant endeavor, to serve you to the best of my ability. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES L. CLAY.

REPORT OF THE 

Supervisor of Music. 



Mr. C. L. Clay, Superintendent of Schools: 

The same general methods have been employed in the 
schools this year, although some changes have been made as 
the result of experience and of what I learned at the Institute 
of Music Pedagogy last July. 

The Individual Sight Singing Series have been employed 
throughout the grades with even better results than last year. 
The pupils are learning to read music at sight with more 
accuracy and self-contidence. All the pupils above the fourth 
grade have been keeping note-books ; they have manifested 
more interest in the theory of music since . they have started 
these books. 

I wish to speak of the noticeable progress which two of 
the classes have made, i. e., the intermediate at North Dana 
and the grammar at Dana Center. Their interest has doubled, 
and they have improved in their pitch and time. 

I am much pleased with the work of the primary grades. 
We have tried to give each pupil in these grades a great deal 
of individual work, of course by imitation. Several were un- 
able to sing even three tones in succession, but they have 
shown much progress, for their pitch is much better. 

Each teacher has been provided with a copy of Baldwin's 
Progressive Melodies. This book has over six hundred melo- 



73 

dies without words and the object is to strengthen the time 
and pitch. The teachers have each copied several of these on 
boards and the children sang them in concert. 

Although the number of pupils in the North Dana gram- 
mar room is less this year, yet the interest and enthusiastic 
work goes on just the same. 

During the spring of 1910 special music was prepared for 
Memorial Day and graduation, and plans are already being 
made to do the same this year. 

I feel that much credit is due the grade teachers for their 
conscientious work along the line of music. 

I wish to express my thanks to the superintendent and 
school committee for their support and co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDITH E. CUMMINGS.

REPORT OF THE 

Supervisor of Drawing. 

Mr. C. L. Clay, Superintendent of Schools: 

Deab Sir: — The work this year in drawing has followed 
quite closely the general plan that was laid out fur last year; 
nature drawing and color Btudy dining September and Octo- 
ber, constructive work with paper and cardboard during 
November and December, object drawing and perspective 
through January, February and March, applied design through 
April and May and nature drawing again in June. 

Since Christmas, the children in the primary grades have 
been busy with free-hand paper cutting and illustrative work. 
They are also learning to measure and to make objects. 

This year the children of the intermediate and grammar 
grades have studied nature drawing in pencil and water color, 
constructive work, working with paper and cardboard. They 
are learning new to see things correctly and to represent 
them. The principles of perspective and the grouping of 
objects are the important features of object drawing. 

Later we shall study and apply design. We must teach 
the children good design in everything, and in order to do 
this they should be taught how designs are made and applied 
to objects of use. 

I thank the teachers and the superintendent for their 
co-operation and help in carrying on my work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

IXA M. CAIjEF.

ECONOMY. 
It will be recalled that a year ago an effort was made to 
retrench in the expenses of the different departments of the 
town's accounts. The school department had been kept well 
within its appropriation and available assets ; it had a balance 
on hand of $254.26. Contracts with teachers and carriers 
then standing must be maintained till the end of the school 
year in June, when, as was stated in the town meeting, some 
suggestions looking toward economy would be attempted. 
Since the beginning of the schools in September, retrench- 
ment has been effected in the following two directions : The 
music and drawing supervisors have visited the schools alter- 
nate weeks instead of each coming every week, as previously ; 
one of the teams conveying the children was dispensed with, 
which necessitated taking six pupils to North Dana, who for- 
merly attended the schools at the Ceuter. These items make 
a saving of something like $12 per week. 

TEACHER CHANGES. 

The spring term was continued under the same teachers 
as listed in our report of a year ago. The fall term began 
with Mrs. Sarah A. Haskins in the primary room at North 
Dana, and Miss Rebecca A. Holbrook of Great Barrington, in 
the grammar room at the Center. We were unable to retain 
Miss Sargent, although re-elected at an advance wage. 
"A RECORD" FOR THE YEAR 1910— '11.. 

It should be made public that during our last school year, 
1910 — '11, not the slightest whisper of a complaint came to 
me from any source whatever, in regard to any one of our 
teachers, whether special or regular. Probably this could 
not truthfully be said of any other school year's work in the 
history of the town. It is hardly necessary to state that we 
desire such teachers, also, that it takes "more monej 7 " to 
retain them.

NEW WORK. 

While children are sent to school primarily to learn to 
"read, write and cipher," new conditions call for a much 
more extended instruction ; somewhere and sometime, the 
child should be taught to use his hands, cultivate his aesthetic 
nature, and develop his imagination. To meet this demand, 
and the better to prepare the child to grapple successfully 
with the affairs of real life, new institutions have been, and 
are being established, such as manual, industrial, and voca- 
tional schools. We are doing some efficient work in music 
and drawing under the supervision of our excellent special 
teachers ; some sewing in the schools at the North, and some 
cane-work at the Center have been attempted with very 
creditable results. A copy of '-Scientific Sewing and Gar- 
ment Cutting" is in both buildings. 

MENTAL ARITHMETIC. 

If there was any one thing that contributed to make the 
scholars of a generation or two ago ^bright in number," it 
was the drill they received by using Colburn's Mental arith- 
metic. Pupils of the middle grades are too generally deficient 
in the quick recognition of the combinations of addition and 
subtraction, and u the tables." From a lack of thorough 
knowledge of the simple numbers of the four processes, I 
think that more time is spent, and consequently wasted, than 
is utilized in arithmetic work. To remedy this the teachers 
have been supplied with "Exercises in Number," and "daily 
drill" is an border of the day." 

HOME CO-OPERATION. 

One of our teachers remarked to me recently, "There is 
so much going on that the children have no time to study at 
home." If this is strictly true, the school has become a 
secondary matter to its patrons. Children above the fourth 
grade cannot properly prepare their lessons during school 



64 

hours; at least one lesson should be learned at home if the 
most is to be obtained by the individual pupil. This will 
probably require some oversight by the parents. 

Another way by which the child can be helped veiw much 
by the home, is by encouraging him to read aloud ; with the 
multiplicity of books, magazines and papers, almost adapted 
to the age of each member of the family, this excellent old- 
time custom has nearly become obsolete. But you will still 
find that the best readers in school are those, usually, who 
are in the habit of reading aloud at home. Besides it pro- 
vides a good criterion for parents to judge whether the school 
is doing, or is failing to do, what it ought for their children. 
TEACHERS' MEETINGS. 

This year we have held two meetings for the teachers of 
the district ; both at North Dana. At the one of April 22, 
Charles A. Prosser, Deputy Commissioner, and Frederick L. 
Burnham, State Agent, gave us some very helpful instruction. 
On October 14, J. W. MacDonald, State Agent, and Superin- 
tendent Ward, Athol, spoke to us out of their long experience 
about Reading and Language, respectively. 

CONCLUSION. 

I think that our schools have done good work the past 
year, and are in good condition now ; that the money of the 
taxpayers expended by the school department has been well 
used. 

A witness to the excellence of our schools during the last 
year is the per cent of attendance, — 95, — it being three 
points above that of the previous year. 

To all who have been associated in any way with me in 
the support and conduct of the schools, I extend my sincere 
thanks for their cordial helpfulness. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CLARENCE L. CLAY, 

Superintendent of Schools.

SELECT ED. 

When Education Begins. 

The overwhelming mystery of life is not death, but life ; 
the most awe-inspiring of miracles is the coming of a human 
soul into the world. 

No society is more than half civilized to-day ; a really 
civilized society would not tolerate conditions which taint the 
child before it is born and saturate him with evil influences 
as soon as he gets into the hall of a tenement-house, or onto 
the street. 

Froebel was a prophet, not an organizer ; in his eyes a 
child had a divine as well as a human parentage, and was 
born into a world fashioned by a heavenly Father and not 
into a vast department store, a machine shop, or a gigantic 
bank. To him motherhood was not only the most holy and 
wonderful function, but a teaching office and opportunity so 
near the gate of heaven that it kept the only School of the 
Soul. 

If methods of education were as luminous with vision as 
they are orderly and systematic, the little child would be 
helped as soon as he goes through the school door ; he is 
helped in many ways, but in fundamental ways he is not 
helped. He needs the individual touch which we call 
motherly ; he gets the impersonal care of a system. He has 
no key to his own nature, and he needs to be unlocked ; he is 
given information instead of freedom. He is a discoverer on 
the most wonderful of voyages through strange seas ; he has 
no language, but he has visions, intimations of what he is, 
mysterious stirrings of his soul, restless movements of his 
imagination ; he needs to be fed with ideas, he is fed with 



facts ; he needs explanations of the mysterious world in 
which he finds himself, he is taught not to ask but to answer 
questions ; he is a poet, and he is set at tasks which will fit 
him later to buy and sell in the many markets of the world. 

Froebel saw that education deals with the spirit even 
more than with a brain, and that the fundamental things of 
life are vital, not intellectual ; that men are fashioned to 
create, not to imitate ; to work with their imaginations, not 
simply with their tools ; to be artists, not artisans ; .to be 
servants of their country, not victims of their prosperity. 

The mother pours herself into the child w 7 hen it seems 
isolated by senses not yet unfolded. u At the close of each 
day the mother bids her child sleep by singing lullabies and 
han efing mystic poppies over the wide-awake eyes. She 
speaks in the highest t}-pe of language, in poetry adorned 
with song, to this little unconscious scrap of humanity. In 
other words, her mystic sense is pressing upon the mystic sense 
of her child as naturally and fitting^ as her arms hold the infant 
body and her lips touch its cheek," are the words, not of a 
German dreamer a hundred years ago, but of an American 
State-builder of to-day in the Far East ; a prophet, a teacher, 
and statesman. 

It is only mothers and men of great soul who know little 
children, and understand the mystery of spiritual education, 
and have learned that the golden years lie at the very begin- 
ning, and the deepest education is imparted in the light of 
dawn ; an education that cannot be measured by the tests of 
the primary grade. — The Outlook. 



Report oi 

Supervisor of Music. 



Mr. C. L. Clay, Superintendent of Schools, Dana: 

The following is my report of the work in music, which 

we have been trying to accomplish during this school year. 
The same system (Weaver) has been pursued as formerly, 

except that some of the grades have been doing more 

advanced work than usual. 

Our music supplies have been reinforced with needed 
books and individual sight singing slips. Each pupil in the 
intermediate grades in North Dana and in the grammar 
grades in Dana Center has had a copy of Baldwin's Progres- 
sive Melodies. This book has exercises without words and 
is especially adapted for drill on time and staff reading. The 
new slips are an improvement on the others in that they are 
better suited to the revised system. 

Briefly, I will try to outline the work for the different 
grades. In the primary rooms w T e teach rote songs, tone 
drill by imitation and numeral dictation, individual staff read- 
ing, simple time principles. In the intermediate grades we 
teach two and three part songs, some work under chromatics, 
individual singing of slips, more advanced time principles. 
In the grammar grades, three and four part songs, advanced 
work in chromatics, individual singing of slips, advanced 
time principles. 





I have been much pleased with the results obtained in the 
two primary rooms this year, the children never sang their 
songs with so much interest and expression, and their staff 
reading is up to grade with any town which has three grades 
in one room. 

At the opening of school in September the number of 
pupils in the intermediate room was smaller than usual, but 
as the year advanced, tbe number increased and marked 
progress has been shown. 

Both grammar rooms, as is apt to be the case with all 
schools, felt the loss of the class which graduated, but the 
entering classes have come up to our expectations and very 
creditable work has been done. 

I fully realize how many of the results obtained are due, 
to the faithfulness of the grade teachers, and I wish to thus 
publicly thank them. I also wish to thank Mr. Clay and the 
school committee for their support and for procuring the 
supplies which a music course demands. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDITH CIMMIXGS, 

Siqiercisor of Jft'sic. 



Report of the Supervisor of Drawing. 



Mr. Charles L. Clay, Superintendent of Schools, North Dana : 

Dear Sir : — I herewith submit my third annual report as 
supervisor of drawing in Dana. 

I have visited the schools once in two weeks this year. 
The teachers have been very helpful in carrying on the work r 
and we have been able to do the work as systematically as in 
the last two years, when I visited the schools once a week. 

We are following the same general plan of work as used 
the last two years : — Nature and color study in the fall, con- 
struction and design work through November and December,, 
principles of perspective, and these principles applied to 
object drawing, during January and February ; in April, 
design applied to useful objects ; nature and color study 
again in May and June, with designs from nature studied. 

I have tried to give more time to industrial work in all 
the grades. "Producing something useful by his own labor 
gives keen satisfaction to a child." In the primary grades 
they have learned to measure and ma,ke things with given 
measurements . 

In the intermediate and grammar grades they have had 
some construction work in paper and cardboard, and have 
made and applied designs to the objects made. In the 
seventh, eighth and ninth grades in North Dana, the pupils 
made scissors cases of leather and planned designs for these. 
They applied the designs by tooling or cutting. The making 



70 

of something useful and planning a design for that object are 
of vast importance to a child. 

They have also studied freehand lettering in the inter- 
mediate and grammar grades. The ability to make letters 
quickly and well will be often found useful. 

I wish to thank the teachers for their help in my work. 
The interest and advancement in the work are very encour- 
aging. 

Respectfully submitted, 

INA M. CALEF.

CHANGES IN THE SCHOOL BOARD. 

It may be of interest to some to know what changes have 
occurred in the make-up of the school committee during the 
year. 

Mr. R W. Stevens having removed from town, Mr. Moses 
T. Knapp was chosen to fill the vacancy. Following the resig- 
nation of Mr. Leslie T. Haskins, Mr. E. B. Francis was selected 
chairman and Mr. Francis, secretary. 

MEETING OF JOINT CONVENTION, ETC. 

April 13 the several school boards of the district met in 
joint convention in the library room at North Dana, and the 
superintendent of schools was unanimously re-elected for a 
term of three years from July 1, 1912. The basis of the divi- 
visiou of the common interests of the district was made 18 
schools, instead of 19 as heretofore, so that Dana has T 5 g-, 
Greenwich T 2 ¥ , New Salem ^ and Prescott T 4 F of the state aid, 
the superintendent's time, etc. 



The following is a paragraph from a letter received by me 
from the office of the secretary of the Massachusetts Board of 
Education, under date of August 19, 1912: — In order to faci- 
litate the work of this office, it is desirable to establish for the 
superinteudency unions of the State a uniform financial year, 
that is, a year extending from July 1 to June 30, on which the 
State may base its annual payments to the unions on account 
of the employment of a superintendent of schools. 

The financial year of this district having begun August 15, 
we complied with the request, but in consequence received only 
81093.75 this year from the State on account of the superin- 
teudency union, in place of the usual sum, $1250; of course 
Dana's share was proportionately less. Hereafter, the larger 
sum will be annually received. 

THE TEACHERS AND THE SCHOOLS. 

The quiet, progressive spirit which characterized our schools 
for the two years preceding July 1st has been soi ewhat dis- 
turbed since then. There has been an unusual number of 
changes, with the consequent resulting interruptions. 

The same corps of efficient teachers that we had at the 
time our last report was made remained with us till the end of 
the regular school year in June. The beginning of the fall 
term found Miss Reba E. Boyes, a recent graduate of Fitch- 
bmg normal, in the primary room at the North, Mrs. Haskins 
having resigned during the vacation ; Miss Ruth V. Maddock 
was engaged for the grammar school at the Center, and Miss 
Emma L. Parker, a teacher of extended and successful experi- 
ence, was placed in the primary room. These teachers could 
not find a boarding place within an easy walking distance of the 
school, such as would permit their "going home to dinner." 
Miss Parker was obliged to give up her position at the end of 
two weeks. 

With two substitutes, and two regular teachers, since Miss 
Parker went away, this school had a varied experience until 



ffl 

Miss Mabel Rodowsky proved herself equal to the situation ; 
of course Mrs. Brown brought k 'order out of confusion," but 
was prevented from continuing her good work by the law which 
forbids the employment of a member of the school committee 
as i teacher. One would think that so many upsets, coming in 
so short a time, would prevent any good results : but in spite of 
all adverses, the school has made good progress. The entering 
class of seven has done remarkably well. 

Then, immediately following the Thanksgiving recess, Miss 
Call resigned to take a more desirable position elsewhere ; her 
fame as a good teacher had spread both far and wide ; doubly 
blessed hr>ve been our children who have come under her influ- 
ence and instruction. The school officials congratulate them- 
selves, however, in having been able to secure for the school 
Miss Elizabeth A. Kelley, a former teacher in this school, one 
already held in great esteem, and well beloved by very many of 
the people of our community. 

Miss Hunt, tried and true, the genial and inspiring teacher 
of the intermediate school, is the only one of the regular teach- 
ers of a year ago who is with us to-day. 

At present, and for several weeks past, the schools have 
been depleted by tk colds and coughs" incident to the season, 
but on the whole the year's woik will be marked by about the 
usual results. It is to be regretted that the school population 
of the town is growing less. 

MUSIC AND DRAWING. 

These subjects have had the same place in our curriculum 
as last year; they have long since ceased to be considered 
"frills" in the course of any good school system. Miss Calef 
resigned during the summer vacation, and Miss E, Maude 
Bradley of Gardner was secured to carry on the work as 
supervisor in drawing. Our pupils continue to enjoy the excel- 
lent instruction of Miss Cummings in music. The reports of 
these supervisors are appended for your consideration.

HOME INFLUENCES. 

It is a common remark, "As is the teacher so is the school ;" 
this is only a partial truth. Isn't it equally true at least that 
the school of a given community will be as the home influences 
are? Wheu school attendance is made a matter of convenience, 
or dependent upon the weather; when children are upheld in 
their misdemeanors at school ; when they are allowed to use 
vulgar language wherever they go, etc., in my judgment the 
school must not be blamed if it cannot counteract such baneful 
influences There is a great difference between a good school 
and a poor one, and whatever makes the difference it is the 
children who are the sufferers. I ask for the sake of the chil- 
dren the helpful assistance of every home. 

THE DISTRICT TEACHERS' MEETING. 

April lo, the teachers and members of the several com- 
mittees held a meeting at the grammar schoolroom, North Dana, 
and enjoyed the following profitable program : 
Teachers' papers on spelling, Read by Supt. Clay 

Education for efficiency, William Orr, Deputy Commissioner 
A lesson in geography, Turkey, Rev. Haig Adadourian 

How to teach geography. Principal F. F. Murdock 

Scientific temperance. Miss Cora F. Stoddard 

VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS. 

The State is making an effort to establish "vocational edu- 
cation" whereby youths can obtain an education "the control- 
ling purpose of which is to fit for profitable employment." 

A vocational agricultural department has been opened by 
the State board of education in connection with the Petersham 
high school. As Dana has two pupils already in this department, 
Sec. 7 of Acts of 191 1, Chap. 471, is here quoted : 

NON-RESIDENT PUPILS. 

1 . Any resident of any city or town in Massachusetts 
which does not maintain an approved independent industrial, 



agricultural or household arts school, offering the type of train- 
ing which he desires, may make application for admission to 
such a school maintained by another city or town. The board 
of education, whose decision shall be final, may approve or dis- 
approve such application. In making such a decision the 
board of education shall take into consideration the opportuni- 
ties for free vocational training in the community in which the 
applicant resides; the financial status of the community; the 
age, sex, preparation, aptitude and previous record of the 
applicant; and all other relevant circumstances. 

2. The city or town in which the persou resides, who has 
been admitted as above provided, V> an approved independent 
industrial, agricultural or household arts school maintained by 
another city or town, shall pay such tuition fee as may be 
fixed by the board of education ; and the commonwealth shall 
reimburse such city or town, as provided for in this act. If 
any city or town neglects or refuses to pay for such tuition, it 
shall be liable therefor in an action of contract to the city or 
town, or cities and towns, maintaining the school which the 
pupil, with the approval of said board attended. 

The tuition in such a school has fixed at $100 a year; one- 
half of the tuition will be refunded. 

The tuition bills are against the town, and not against the 
school department of the town ; a specific appropriation should 
be made to cover such cases. 

CONCLUSION. 

Bespeaking the continued liberality of the voters to provide 
means for carrying on the schools successfully, and gratefully 
acknowledging the hearty co-operation of the school committee,, 
teachers and the citizens in general, friends, all, this report is 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES L. CLAY, 

Superintendent of Schools. 



KEPOHT OF THE 

Supervisor of Music. 



Mr. C. L. Clay, Superintendent ef School*. North Dana. Mass. : 

It is with pleasure that I submit my fourth report of the 
music accomplished in the town of Dana. 

It certainly must be apparent to all who visit the schools 
during the music period, whether conducted by the supervisor 
or by the grade teacher, that the pupils are gaining in con- 
centration and self-control. This is due to the practice which 
each pupil receives in individual singing. Twice each week 
every pupil i> required to ring alone an eight-measure exer- 
cise, or commonly called slip: and care is taken that a child 
shall not receive the same slip more than once. 

In most schoolrooms where music is taught as one of the 
required subjects, one may hear good chorus singing, but not 
in every class may one find good individual work. We claim 
that our classes are as strong as its weakest pupil. 

The following criticism has been made: ''The children of 
the present day are not taught to keep time.'" I wish to an- 
swer to this as best I can. We do not allow our pupils to 
beat time with their feet or hands, because this detracts from 
reading of syllables and later in rendering the words; but we 
do teach them to pulsate (or push with the voice) the tones 
which should receive more than one beat. Certain groups of 
notes are taught in each grade, and if there is more than one 
tone to a beat, they are taught to accent the first one. Those 



71 

who have observed the music work will aerree with me that 
the children feel the time and do not have to use mechanical 
means in order to sing correctly. 

The three principal points to keep before one are pitch, 
tune and time, and often mistakes in time are the result of 
slow reading. 

About the same work in theory has to be covered each 
year because new pupils come in and the upper grade goes 
to next room or graduates. 

In most of the rooms we have been able to learn a new 
song every two weeks. 

I am grateful for the suppoit which I have received from 
parents, teachers, school committee and Mr. Clay. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDITH E. CUMMINGS, 

Supervisor of Music. 



REPORT OF THE 

Supervisor of Drawing. 



Mr. Charles L. Clay, Superintendent of Schools, North Dana t 

Mass. : 

Deae Sir: — I have the honor to submit ruy first report 
as Supervisor of Drawing in the public schools. 

In drawing, as well as in other subjects, modern theories 
in regard to education have brought about changes in the 
methods of instruction. In some studies these have been 
slight, consisting merely in a change of emphasis, or a dis- 
position to regard certain parts as important which were not 
formerly so considered, while in others radical differences 
between the past and present methods of teaching exist. In 
drawing the present tendencies are to emphasize line work — 
drawing with pencil or pen, principally in outline — to have 
the pupils experiment for themselves and discover the effects 
of fore-shortening through the use of models they have made, 
and to make the work thorough, so that results are the con- 
sequence of study and serious endeavor on the part of the 
scholar. 

Much practice in line-work leads to more correct drawing, 
for there is no way, as in water-color or charcoal, to conceal 
errors. Any mistake in foreshortening may be plainly seen 
and is easily corrected. Scholars should learn to represent 
by means of a pencil sketch, simple objects showing their 
true proportions and positions. Dictionaries would become 



73 

geographies, and saucers would be bowls simply by changes in 
proportion. 

Suppose the model chosen is an ordinary glass partly filled 
with water. Simple as it seems, this involves practice in 
drawing lines, study of proportion, experiments with the 
foreshortened circle at different levels noting the change in 
size, and observation of illustrations of glassware to learn 
how transparency may be suggested. These are fundamental 
principles, which, if understood and correctly applied, make 
it possible to draw other and more complicated objects. The 
drawing of a model like this should bring to the child the 
satisfaction which results from an honest effort to represent 
the truth to the best of his present ability. And it does 
accomplish this, and after completing such a drawing the 
child feels a wholesome respect for the result of honest labor 
and study, as well as increased power to represent truthfully 
other objects. 

I believe that any child who is willing to give attention, 
and practice faithfully during the drawing period, can learn 
to sketch common objects creditably ; and while, as a rule, a 
scholar with natural ability will do better work than one 
whose talents all lie along another line, still there is a great 
deal of satisfaction in seeing a pupil who has no real talent 
gradually coming to do work which compares very favorably 
with that of those who have. In our schools this year we 
have made an effort to teach as thoroughly as possible the 
different branches of drawing studied. Color booklets con- 
taining plates of the spectrous colors and various modifica- 
tions, with written definitions of many color terms, have been 
made. During December note-book covers were constructed 
and in some rooms the workmanship in these was excellent. 

Just now we are engaged in sketching common objects, and 

much interest is shown. We are taking this up in such a 



74 

way that pupils may test their work much as one can prove 
an example in arithmetic. 

In general I feel that much good thorough work has been 
accomplished, which should aid pupils in making practical 
use of drawing in their home life. 

In closing, I wish to express to the school officials my 
appreciation for their courtesy and co-operation, and to thank 
the teachers for their help and interest. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. MAUDE BRADLEY.

AUDITOR'S RECOMMENDATION. 



I would recommend that no payment, for any purpose 
whatsoever, be made out of the town treasury, except upon 
the order of Selectmen, Overseers of the Poor or School 
Committee. 

That all monies collected by any town officer, or agent, be 
paid into the treasury of the town, and that all bills due the 
town be rendered to the Selectmen by the different heads of 
departments and committees by February 1 . 

I would call attention to the following : 

[Chap. 887.] 

An Act relative to sending notices to city and town 
auditors of payments of money. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

Whenever any state, county, city or town officer of this 
commonwealth makes a payment of public money to a city or 
town treasurer of this commonwealth he shall furnish at the 
same time to the auditor of the city or town to which the 
payment is made an accurate statement in writing of the 
amount of the payment, together with the date and purpose 
thereof. [Approved April 5, 1912.]

NOTES, VOTES AND COMMENTS. 

February 27 it was voted to unite the schools at the Center 
on the beginning of the spring term; the lower room was to 
be used, and Miss Mabel Rodowsky, the efficient teacher of 
the primary department, was elected teacher of the union 
school. 

March 3, at the annual town meeting, appropriations for 
school purposes were made without any opposition whatever, 
and were generous. Mr. Charles W. Loomis was elected a 
member of the school committee for one year, to fill the 
unexpired term of Mr. E. B. Francis, resigned ; Mr. Moses T. 
Knapp was elected for a full term, succeeding himself. 

March 11 the school committee organized, Mrs. Nellie M. 
Brown being continued as chair-man, and Mr. Loomis as 



6tf 

secretary. Mr. Andrew E. Cutting and Mr. A. E. Doane 
were elected truant officers ; Charles L. Clay was chosen 
supply agent. 

Much 17 the spring term opened; the Center school had 
twenty-three pupils and sixty-four were at the North ; three 
years ago the Centre had thirty-six pupils, and the North 
sixty-seven. It is not pleasing to note this shrinkage in 
population. 

During this term there was no outlay for transportation 
except for four or rive children in stormy weather, and the 
conveyance of a ninth-grade pupil from the Center to the 
grammar school at fifty cents per week. 

"Minimum Essential Sheets" were introduced; these sheets 
are for the different grades ; one contains all the "combina- 
tions" from 1 to 10, another the "multiples" from 2 to 144, 
another the points to be observed in letter-writing, another 
the common definitions in grammar, etc. They are excellent 
for drill and time-savers. 

April 24 a case of small-pox developed at the North village 
and the schools were ordered closed by the Board of Health ; 
this was only for one day, however. All the children of the 
town were vaccinated who had not been previously : the 
attendance for a few weeks was very low. 

June G the spring term closed; the year's work was highly 
successful. The graduation exercises were held in the after- 
noon and were very pleasing ; six of the eight graduates 
entered high schools in the fall. 

With the close of the school year came the discontinuance 
of Miss Hunt's work in the Intermediate room after a faithful 
service of three years ; no better evidence of our appreciation 
need be given than that she was asked to remain at an 
advanced wage. It was always "sunshine" in Miss Hunt's 
scho 1 even on a cloudy day. 



69 

Miss Boyes, our primary teacher, who from the first had 
made herself very popular, refused to accept a re-election; 
evidently she loved some one else better than she did us. 

July *2 Miss Cummings, our excellent supervisor in music, 
resigned to accept a more desirable position. 

In August some necessary repairs were made. At the 
Center house the lower rooms and halls were washed, ceilings 
whitened, walls tinted, wood-work shellaced, and seats 
redressed; the work was well done by Mr. George S. Eddy, 
at an expense of $30.85. At the North house the same work 
was done in the three rooms and halls and the gutters w r ere 
reziijced ; it was found that the bad leakage came from the 
corroded metal of the gutters. All this repair and replace- 
ment cost about $56.62. 

June 5 and August 28 the committee elected teachers as 
follows : Emma L. Parker, South Ashrield, for the primary 
school; Emma L. Eldridge, Orleans, Vt., for the intermediate 
school ; Elizabeth A. Keiley, Shrewsbury, for the grammar 
school; B. Theodora Sjoberg, Everett, for the Center school, 
Mabel Rodowsky, Mansfield, supervisor of music ; E. Maude 
Bradley, Gardner, supervisor of drawing: jauitors, J. E. 
Thompson, for the North; Geo; ge W. Durkee for the 
Center. 

Mr. Dominic Dumas was engaged to*carry the children of 
the Doubleday village neighborhood at $1 per day. It was 
voted to provide conveyance on stormy and very bad weather 
for the pupils of two families living one and one-fourth miles 
or more from their schools. 

September 2 the fall term began ; Sanborn's Speller was put 
into use and the following method of teaching the subject 
w T as suggested to the teachers throughout the district in all 



70 

grades above the third : ten, fifteen or twenty words, 
unstudied, are given out ; the pupils write them on "scrap- 
paper" and, referring to their textbook, write the mis- 
spelled words correctly in their blank-books ; they also enter 
in these blank-books all misspelled words noticed in any of 
their other work ; this list is then studied and spelled, and the 
"story" is repeated. 

A pre- American history was given the sixth grade ; following 
the use of history reading in grades IV and V, and before 
entering upon the formal study of the subject, the pupils are 
given a glimpse of the Old World that they may know there 
was "something doing" worth recoiding as history before 
"1402". 

October 10 Dr. Ellis resigned as school physician ; Dr. 
Stephen Witt was elected to the position. 

October 17 Dr. Witt gave the North schools large portraits, 
appropriately framed, of Washington and Lincoln ; the com- 
mittee duly acknowledged the generous gift, and the pictures 
were hnng in the grammar room. 

October 23 the committee voted to engage Miss Sjoberg as 

janitor of the Center building at -SI per week. 

Explanation — When the schools were united, no responsi- 
ble caretaker could be found for a less wage than what Mr. 
Snow offered to do, $4 per week; he did the work to the end 
of the term, even after he removed from town ; the same con- 
ditions prevailed with the added weight of a "precedent" 
when Mr. Durkee was engaged; acting upon a suggestion of 
the janitor made later, that by putting in a stove and cutting 
the wood shorter (four-foot wood was used in the furnace ) 
the expense of heating could be materially reduced, a stove 
was set up, and the teacher was willing to take the care of the 
house. 



71 

November 20 Mr. Dumas "threw up" his job, and Mrs. 
Bosworth was engaged to carry out the contract at the same 
rate of compensation. 

It was voted to increase the salary of Miss Kelley to £14 
per week as a slight recognition of her unusual ability as a 
teacher; fortunate, indeed, are the children who come under 
her influence and instruction. 

January 2 Miss Bradley resigned, and \Iiss Florence Rogan. 
Athol, was secured for the posiiion; she began wOrk the 19th. 

January 8 Miss Hannah P. Waterman, supervisor of cor- 
respondence courses at North Adams Normal School, spent a 
half day with the teachers of each town of the district; with 
the pupils of the visited school Miss Waterman gave such 
teaching exercises as the teachers desired ; she met our teach- 
ers on the afternoon of the second day and it hardly need be 
said that exemplification of work was both very interesl 
and profitable. 

January 29 the commit: ee voted to give the use of the 
North buildiug, outside school hours, for community service 
under the direction of the Superintendent of Schools. It is 
thought that something may be done for the children in 
sewing, basketry, etc., on Saturday afterno »ns, vnd that a 
reading room might be opened on some evenings of the w 

SELECTED. 

Education constitutes the most important institution in the 
national economics* The pubic schools are the most imp r- 
tant agencies of education, because nine-tenths of those who 
receive any education at all attend them. Governors, legisla- 
tors, boards of education and school buildings do not teach. 
They are means to the existence of the school. It all depends 
upon the teacher ; the teacher inake* the school ; the teacher 
creates the school in his own image ; he makes the schoi I 



72 

according to bis own character. The teacher is. in fact, the 
school, and the most important function of government is to 
place in the school teachers of the highest moral character. 
If pure democracy must succeed in this great land, the school 
teachers must hold the highest ideals of citizenship. — U. S. 
Commissioner of Education. 

THREE LEGISLATIVE ENACTMENTS OF 1913. 

The Massachusetts Retirement System. — An arrange- 
ment for paying annniti - to teachers: it g 

effect as far as teachers are concerned July 1. 1914; all 

public day school teachers employed by the school committees 

- and - sachusette, except Boston, may 

join -hing to join must file a written application 

with the Commissioner of Education between July 1 and 

1 : the cost of membership is rive per cent, of 

ry : upon order of the school committee the town treasurer 

is to deduct the assessment from the teacher's salary, and 

forward th< tactions once a month to the secretary of the 

retirement board ; a member teacher may retire at the age of 

y and must retire at the age of seventy. 

2. Transportation of High School Pupils. — A town in 
which a high school is not required to be maintained shall, 
through its school committee, when necessary, provide for 
the transportation of any child who resides in said town and 
who. with the previous approval of the school committee of 
the town, attends the high school of any other town or city, 
and shall pay for the expense of such transportation a sum 
not exceeding $1.50 per week during the time of actual 
attendance of such child in the high school; * * * * 
and a town which has expended from the proceeds of local 
taxation for the support of its schools for the preceding year 
aii amount equal to at least five dollars per thousand of valua- 



73 

tion shall receive from the treasury of the Commonwealth the 
whole transportation under the provisions of this act. 

3. Relating to Employment of Women and Chil- 
dren. — Children under fifteen must have written permission 
of the Selectmen in order, lawfully, to take part in a festival, 
concert, or musical exhibition ; children under sixteen shall 
not operate certain machines, twenty-one being named, and 
must attend day school regularly unless they hold employ- 
ment certificates and work six hours per day regularly, or 
have the written permission of the Superintendent of Schools 
to engage in profitable employment at home; or unless other- 
wise receiving instruction in a manner approved in advance 
by the Superintendent of Schools or the School Committee ; 
employment certificate cannot be issued to any one unless 
fourth-grade work in reading, writing and spelling has been 
completed ; children between sixteen and eighteen may work 
not more than ten hours in one day or fifty-four hours in one 
week ; children under twenty-one must not be employed in, 
about, or in. connection with saloons or bars or sent to 
immoral lesorts; if boys between eighteen and twenty-one are 
employed in factories, workshops, manufacturing, mechanical, 
or mercantile establishments, employers must hold educational 
certificates. These certificates are to be issued, upon evidence 
of age, by the Superintendent of Schools.

ducting the schools during the past year, and not forgetting

A BRIEF RECORD AND COMMENTS. 



At the March meeting Mrs. Elvie M. Doubleday was 
elected a member of the school board for a term of three years. 
The board organized with Mrs. Brown as chairman, and Mrs. 
Doubleday as secretary; A. E. Doane was appointed truant 
officer; Dr. Stephen Witt, school physician; C. L. Clay, supply 
agent. 



49 

The schools closed in June after a year of marked success. 
The following pupils were given diplomas: Irene Albee, Fannie 
Blackmer, Sadie Cooley, Mary Donovan, Agnes Dufresne, 
Florence Ripley and Alice Towne, all but two of whom entered 
high schools in the fall. 

'When the schools opened in September, there appeared 
only one change in the corps of teachers — Mrs. Eleanor K. 
Richardson taking charge of the Intermediate room. The 
"machinery". of the schools has run along "like clockwork". 

The fiscal year now closes with the expiring day of 
December 31st. During this last period of eleven months, it 
seems to me that the town has received for the money ex- 
pended in its schools about as near "100 cents on a dollar" 
as it may reasonably expect to receive. Of course not every 
pupil is making the most of his opportunity, not every parent 
is earnestly co-operating with his children's teacher; such a 
"millenium" is still in the future. 

Your committee ever strives to expend the school moneys 
wisely and economically, but it must not be expected that the 
cost of educating a child will grow less; it will probably in- 
crease. Last year the item of transportation necessarily ex- 
ceeded that of the previous year for the reason that a family 
with children moved onto the Bixby place, and no one came 
forward with a bid for carrying the pupils in this section of 
the town at less than SI 1.00 per week. 

When it costs so much to school our children, it behooves 
parents to see that their pupils are kept in constant attendance 
and in good condition for work. A growing boy or girl cannot 
lose sleep, attend late parties, and distracting picture shows 
without weakening and scattering their mental and physical 
energies. If parents do not consider the school of prime im- 



50 

portance, the children certainly will not. Pupils cannot keep 
up to grade without constant attendance, continued effort, 
and undiverted attention. 

The following paragraph puts one matter within the com- 
prehension of most everyone; 

"The average educated man gets a salary of $1,000 per 
year. He works forty years, making a total of $40,000 in a 
lifetime. The average day laborer gets $1.50 per day, 300 
days in the year, or $450 in a year. In forty years he earns 
$18,000. The difference, or $22,000, equals the value of an 
education. To acquire this earning capacity requires twelve 
years at school of 180 days each, or 2,160 days. Divide 
$22,000, the value of an education, by 2,160, number of days 
required getting it, we find that each day at school is worth 
a little more than $10 to a pupil. Can't afford to miss school, 
can we?" 

READING. 

More and more each year have we tried to lay stress upon 
reading, the most important subject of all the child's school 
activities. In his future, if he has little other use for his school- 
house education, he will always want to read more or less. 
Our Commissioner of Education says this subject is fairly 
well taught in the lower grades: above the fourth grade, there 
is too little efficient teaching, and by far too much simply 
"hearing the pupils" call words and telling them when they 
fail to pronounce. The pupil's voice is allowed to be pitched 
above a pleasant tone, is constantly "let fall" at commas 
and frequently "kept up" at periods; no attention is paid to 
expression, thought getting, or the "mechanics" of the 
exercise. Now good readers cannot ever be made in this way. 
It isn't the number of pages or the number of books gone 
over that counts; children often are allowed to mumble over 



51 

several pages at a "hearing" when the time should be spent 
on a single paragraph. One of the best recitations in reading 
I ever listened to was where a large class covered but a single 
sentence. 

It's a sorry performance the grammar — or high school 
pupil usually makes when unexpectedly called upon to read 
even a short selection in public. 

Bulletin No. 10, 1913, issued by the Massachusetts Board 
of Education, has something to say on this subject worthy 
the attention of every teacher, parent and pupil, at least. 
Please allow me to quote briefly: 

Reading in grades above the fourth should include: 

(a) Oral reading of a few carefully selected pieces for 
drill in expression. 

(b) Systematic exercises in silent reading for training in 
thought getting. 

(c) Silent reading of magazines and books. 

(d) The oral reading of articles of general interest which 
have been selected by the children. 

(a) A good way to improve the expression is to use two 
recitations a week for drill on a few choice selections. Each 
piece should be studied intensively. A position favorable to 
good reading, accurate pronunciation, effectiveness of the 
voice, and mastery of the thought of each sentence should 
all be secured. The class should be drilled as thoroughly as 
though each pupil was preparing for a prize-speaking contest. 

Two periods a week for several weeks may profitably be 
devoted to the first piece. Less time will be required for later 
selections. 

Thorough training on a few selections will improve all 
oral reading. 

(b) Reading is thought getting. Silent reading is more 
important than oral reading. Very few people read aloud in 



52 



daily life. In school, pupils fail to solve the problems in 
arithmetic and to learn the history, geography and physiology 
lessons because of their inability to read, i. e., to get the 
thought from the printed page. 

If any teacher is interested, I advise you to send for this 
bulletin. 

IN CONCLUSION. 

My connection with the school interests of this town has 
been very pleasant. To every one with whom I have been 
associated in any way in the discharge of the responsible 
duties in which we have been engaged, I wish to express

Report of Supervisor of Music, 



MR. C. L. CLAY, SUPERINTENDENT: 

Dear Sir: I am pleased to submit this report as Super- 
visor of Music in the schools of Dana. 

Music is being recognized more and more as an important 
factor in the school curriculum and public school music to- 
day aims to give the children a thorough training in the fun- 
damentals of music. It does not mean merely singing, but 
also work in theory, and written work applying the theory 
learned. 

It is true that some children have less musical voices 
than others and will never be professionals in that subject, 
just as this is true in any other study. A musical talent or at 
least an appreciation once developed will always be a plea- 
sure to anyone not only in singing or playing himself but in 
hearing others. 

We aim for tune, reading and time. Much attention is 
given to beginners because I believe that every child who 
can talk, can learn to sing if he is taught in his early school 
days. It is surprising to see how the little folks progress in 
music, especially tho^e who could not imitate one tone cor- 
rectly when they entered school. In the primary room at 



57 

North Dana, a year ago, there were very few who could carry 
a tune correctly. They can now sing a number of songs very 
well, perhaps not every tone accurate as yet, but certainly 
a wonderful improvement. 

I believe that good reading is very essential. Lack of 
interest and failure to keep time are usually due to an in- 
ability to read well. 

Much time is given to individual work. This is neces- 
sary because "a class cannot be strong unless every member 
is strong." The individual slips used are taken from a set 
of finely graded exercises, so that each child may have those 
which he can do. As soon as one section is well done, a more 
difficult is used. 

Part singing in the intermediate and grammar grades 
makes the work interesting. We have recently discovered 
some bass voices in the North grammar school and I am 
pleased with the interest that they have taken in starting 
four part work. 

In all the schools of Dana there is a good spirit and I 
feel sure that much progress is being made. 

I owe thanks to the school officials for their support and 
to the teachers for their earnest help. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MABEL F. RODOWSKY, 

Supervisor of Music.

Report of Supervisor of 
Drawing. 



MR. CHARLES CLAY, 

SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS: In compliance 
with your request I submit my report for the year just com- 
pleted. 

Each school has been visited once in two weeks, and in 
almost every case enthusiasm for the work has been manifest. 

It may be well to explain here just what is the aim in the 
drawing work in the different grades. In the primary grades 
an attempt is made to develop the expression of the children's 
images, by the drawing of incidents in their everyday life,, 
common objects in which they are especially interested, and 
illustrations of simple stories and rhymes with which they are 
familiar. Work in color is also begun to quicken their ap- 
preciation of all the beauty which lies about them, so often 
viewed with unseeing eyes. 

In the upper grades the necessity is felt for more adequate 
mental pictures of that which the pupil desires to express, 
and so objects are drawn which illustrate the principles of 
foreshortening and convergence. Accuracy, and the power 
of concentration (which is one of the important lessons to be 



59 

learned in life) are the aims in all constructive work, as well 
as a knowledge of the principles of good design and harmonious 
color. 

While much of the work falls short of our ideal, the re- 
sults should be judged not for themselves, but for the increased 
power to apprehend the ideal toward which we are striving. 

Our aim is not to turn out from the schools poets, mu- 
sicians, artists or craftsmen, but boys and girls with a 
sufficient knowledge of the underlying principles in poetry, 
music, arts or crafts, to enable them to appreciate the best 
in all these, and thus to broaden their own and others' lives. 

No matter what the conditions of life after the pupil 
leaves school, any insight into whatever is good or true or 
beautiful in the work of all ages and among all peoples, can 
never be a loss to that pupil, but must help to brighten that 
life and enlarge its outlook. It goes almost without saying, 
that the efficient citizen is not the man who has only one 
narrow groove with which he is familiar, but the man who 
has acquainted himself with as many subjects as possible, 
and has an interest in all that pertains to broader living. 

In closing, I am glad of the opportunity to express my 
appreciation of the unfailing interest and helpfulness of 
Superintendent and teachers, which has made my work a 
pleasure. 

Respectfully submitted, 

L. FLORENCE ROGAN.

Superintendent's Report. 



To the School Committee of Dana: 

Herein is contained my first annual report of the Dana pub- 
lic schools, the fourteenth under the present union superinten- 
dency. 

As my connection with the schools of the town covers a 
period of only six months this report will be concerned mainly 
with the work going on since the beginning of the current school 
year. Below are the most common statistics for use in compari- 
son with other schools and in rating our own schools.

The general situation of Dana schools is this: North Dana 
has the fairly well-graded system, embracing Primary, Inter- 
mediate and Grammar divisions, with three grades each. These 
schools are well housed in pleasant, comfortable, equipped rooms 
and the school building has mostly modern arrangements under 
careful and constant janitor service. The teachers were fitly 
selected for their respective rooms and are growing in their special 
work and in the spirit of the pupils under their care. A position 
in the North Dana school is a desirable one and success can be 
easily and definitely rated. 

At Dana Center the ungraded, or mixed, type of school 
remains. As common school work everywhere has gradually 
divided itself within a generation or more into distinct and well 
marked groups — Primary and Grammar — it becomes an ever 
increasing task for a teacher to be elastic enough for an enthus- 
iastic primary teacher and at the same time an energetic, scholar- 
ly and dignified leader of grammar grade pupils. 

The normal schools of our commonwealth have been re- 
organized very lately with the foregoing fact facing them, and 
hence they train teachers mostly for work of the first six grades. 
The class of teachers for upper grammar grades is not yet be- 
ing adequately trained for us and towns like ours must still de- 
pend upon the experienced, mature woman of scholarly ten- 
dencies to handle properly our upper grammar grades. It thus 
becomes almost a necessity for us to have the grades of a school 
taught by at least two teachers, in order to give the pupils any- 
thing like justice. This means the transportation of upper gram- 
mar grade pupils, when these pupils are very few or the school too 
small for profitably employing two teachers; or it means that the 
school should be divided and under the charge of two teachers, 
each specially fitted for the respective division to be taught. 
The condition of expense and school-room accommodation must 
enter into this movement. Dana Center has the good fortune 



11 

of an excellent two-room building just suited to the two-school 
plan. The item of extra cost of one teacher's salary, compared 
with the increased benefits, is worthy of fair and serious con- 
sideration by school officials and citizens. The preparation of 
the Center pupils under two specially fitted teachers should 
closely approach the standard reached in the North Dana schools. 
This is a most important object to be gained. 

The above proposed change in the Center school is the main 
call for extra outlay of money. There is prospect at present of 
not more than two or three agricultural pupils to pay for at New 
Salem academy, the net cost of whom to the town is $50 each, 
aside from transportation and half tuition rates as regular 
high school pupils. Provision for agricultural pupils, however, 
should be made in town appropriation, since this matter is 
governed by a special law applying to towns rather than directly 
to school departments. 

We come next to school-room management and instruction, 
matters concerned with the co-working of superintendent, 
teachers and pupils. Here is the field of supervision proper in 
its operation. Throughout the district I have started a scien- 
tific system of record keeping, applying not only to the customary 
statistics of attendance and to school material used, but to the 
work and characteristics of the pupils themselves. There was a 
time not many decades ago when no rank marks were used to 
show the standing of pupils. This was the time of strong schol- 
arship attained by a few pupils in a few things. The pupils' 
class was not then determined by per cents or four capital 
letters. Since those good old times the era or rank marks has 
been running its course. We are now beginning a new era. The 
ranking system is being retained for certain purposes only. It 
serves merely as a help in the great process of guiding and pro- 
moting pupils. Out of the old scholarship ranking system has 
grown the much more important record keeping of the pupil's 



12 

habits of work in and out of school, habits even of play, as well 
as habits in all his dealings with persons and things about him, 
and finally a record of his physical, mental and moral conditions 
and tendencies. This all calls for the teacher's thorough and 
intimate acquaintance with the pupil and the putting of that 
experience into a readable and permanent form. The following 
are some of the points on a record card put out by the state 
board of education and used in our high schools: General health. 
Care of personal appearance. In what subjects does the pupil 
show natural ability ? In what subjects does he have special 
difficulties? What kind of ability, if any does he reveal through 
activities outside of school or classroom ? What special strong 
points of character does he show, such as reliability, persever- 
ance, initiative? Has he signified any vocation which he desires 
to enter, and if so, what vocation? Does he intend to remain 
in school, etc. Similar points are taken into account in com- 
pletely recording the status of our elementary pupils. 

I have spoken of a system of attendance records kept by 
teachers. There has been altogether too much detail in getting at 
the required results and so I have sought to simplify and render 
easy and plain, as well as correct, this kind of work. Not more 
than a quarter of the usual time is really necessary to go through 
the red tape part of school teaching. 

While much matter formerly taught in our schools remains 
and will remain, yet we are working at a selective and simpli- 
fying process. Too many things have been put before the pupil 
and too little of any one thing has been actually acquired. For this 
reason I have assigned a single main subject or two in a study 
as the work of a term. Tests on such a definite assignment 
show they are definite and valuable, as well as encouraging to 
the pupils. Our motto for the year is: Intensive rather than 
extensive cultivation in the school field. An urgent invitation 



13 

is extended to all parents and friends to visit our schools to ob- 
serve what is now receiving emphasis. 

Transportation in rural communities is an unsettled and 
unsatisfactory matter for the towns and school committees 
to deal with. So in Dana. The present drivers of our teams are 
good men for their work, but it is another side that especially 
needs attention Carrying children to school from an adjoining 
district after its school has been closed is not so much a legal 
requirement as it is a custom and a voluntary contribution. A 
New England Supreme Court has lately decided to hold as legal 
the district lines formally adopted by the school committee for 
purposes of school attendance, now that the old district lines 
have been legally abolished by introduction of the town system. 
This fixes the school which such children shall attend and it 
also determines the related question of transportation. I favor 
such a settling of limits, best by school committee and select- 
men combined, not by distance from the school only, but by 
road conditions and other circumstances, which may vary from 
year to year. Two miles can sometimes be traveled by children 
more easily than one mile at other times and under other condi- 
tions. Hence the old school-house or school corner is the pro- 
per point set for the children of the old district to meet the trans- 
portation carriage. 

In appreciation of the willing helpfulness given me by school 
committee and citizens, as well as teachers and pupils, this re- 
port is 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES C. RICHARDSON, 

Superintendent of Schools.

Report of Supervisor of Drawing. 



MR. CHARLES C. RICHARDSON, Superintendent of Schools: 

In submitting my annual report I find no important change 
to record. The work in drawing has in most cases progressed satis- 
factorily along definite lines which have been explained in previous 
report. It has been the policy of your supervisor to carry out 
as far as possible a course which will have a gradual growth from 
grade to grade, although many supervisors attempt to "keep 
up with the times" by adopting each new fad as it is introduced. 

When any idea has been proved of value after a sufficient 
trial, then by all means should it be adopted, but it is not well 
for pupils to be obliged constantly to readjust themselves to 
new methods which may be cast aside almost immediately for 
other new ones of no more stability than the preceding. 

A continuation of the drawing work for those who enter 
the Athol high school next September is at last a probability, 
and it is the hope of your supervisor that all will avail themsel- 
ves of this opportunity. 

For those who ask "Of what value is such a course?" An 
answer will be found in the following quotation from President 
Elliott. "The best place to inculcate the love for the beautiful 
is the school-room. To the rising generation the most effective 



15 

lessons can be given, and from the school millions of children 
will carry the lessons to millions of homes. After reading, spell- 
ing, writing, and ciphering with small numbers and in simple 
operations, drawing should be the most important school sub- 
ject. All children should learn how lines, straight and curved, 
and lights and shades form pictures, and may be made to ex- 
press symmetry and beauty. All children should acquire by 
use of the pencil and brush power of observation and exactness 
in copying, and should learn through their own work what the 
elements of beauty are. It is monstrous that the common school 
should give much time to compound numbers, bank discount 
and stenography, and little time to drawing. It is monstrous that 
the school which prepares for college should give four or five 
hours a week for two years to Greek, and no time at all to 
drawing. The main object in every school should be, not to 
provide the children with a means of earning a livelihood, but 
to show them how to live a happy, worthy life, inspired by ideals 
which exalt and dignify both labor and leisure. To see beauty 
and to live it is to possess large securities for such life. 

So much of the successful issue must depend upon the teach- 
ers that it is a pleasure to be able to express my appreciation 
of the service rendered by those who have so earnestly endeavored 
to accomplish all that could be accomplished in the limited time 
given to drawing. 

In closing, allow, me to thank you, Mr. Richardson, for 
your kindness and helpfulness. 

Respectfully submitted, 

L. FLORENCE ROGAN.

Report of Music Supervisor. 



MR. C. C. RICHARDSON, Superintendent of Schools, 
Dana Mass. 

It gives me pleasure to submit my first report as music 
supervisor in the Dana schools. 

I find that in every school the foundation of the music 
teaching has been well laid. There is adequate supply of ma- 
terial to insure good progress. I took up the work as nearly 
as I could where Miss Rodowsky left off. 

The sight reading, which has received my especial atten- 
tion, is progressing well in all the rooms but especially so in the 
lower grades of North Dana. 

All schools are receiving especial work in rhythm, and I 
think this is going to be of very great help not only in sight- 
reading but in appreciation of music. 

The quality of tone has also improved through various 
drills. This flexibility of tone is of value in song interpretation. 

Both teachers and pupils have shown interest and most 
pupils an aptitude in grasping the technical part of the music- 
training which is very necessary to give them power to under- 
stand and appreciate music, 



17 

I wish to thank you, the board of directors, and the teachers 
for your kindness and co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ELIZABETH F. STRECKER, 

Supervisor of Music.

The most noteworthy change in the care of the schools is 
the grading brought about by opening the new room at the 
Center. The work of two teachers, instead of one, is thus 
going on all the time. Proportionate results follow. The 
committee's decision to supply a regular janitor for this 
school was wise and fortunate, both in the man selected and in 
the quality of the service he is rendering. It is a pleasure 
for the superintendent to inspect the housekeeping maintained 
at this school. 

Three new regular teachers out of the total five in the 
town was considerable of a change in one year and it took 
time to adjust the changes in method and in personality. 
But the pupils and people are beginning to appreciate the value 
of these new teachers and the schools are running with unusual 
harmony. 

In the special departments of Drawing and Music there is 
a noticeable advance. All of the regular teachers have both the 
native ability and the willing response needed to give these 
subjects the time and care that is due them. The work 
of the supervisors is presented in very definite form and it 
largely depends upon the regular teacher to see this work prop- 
erly carried out according to the original intention. 

The work of the instructor in sewing, Miss Dora C. Foley, 
during the Spring term was valuable. This year should see 
the same repeated and extended and the addition of crafts for 
the boys. That a greater interest in handiwork is shown in the 
community is evidenced by the success of basketry and other 
reed work now being taught in the adult classes by Mrs. 
Edith Loomis. 

The unusual amount of repair work and renovation 
done to the school property during the past summer vacation 
including the painting of the North Dana building, puts 
the buildings into excellent condition for some time to come. 



10 

Only minor changes and additions are still called for. The 
introduction of a row each year of the best type of adjustable 
pupils' desks is a highly desirable movement and will not call 
for much expenditure. 

The installing of electric lights in the North Dana school 
building would meet a demand that has been growing for more 
than a year. The faithful teacher's work begins before the nine 
o'clock bell strikes and it does not end when the pupils file 
out at three-thirty. Often from one to two hours' preparation 
for the next day has to be done in the school room after the 
day's session is over. This can be well done in short days only 
with good lighting. There is also a growing demand for com- 
munity use of the school rooms. The school is the kind of 
public building that can best serve the community in any at- 
tempts at social or educational betterment. 

The responsibility of meeting the usual calls for pupils' 
supplies and books has been greater this school year than ever 
before since towns began to furnish these articles to the schools. 
Prices in the school year 1915-16 went up in case of many 
kinds of common supplies from 50 to 100 per cent, and thus 
far in the present school year a further advance of 60 to 70 
per cent has faced us. Hence bills have been much larger 
than heretofore, even for much less material. The price of 
many books has remained the same, while that of others 
was raised on January 1, 1917. Those things, such as paper, 
pencils and pens, which are consumed week by week, have ad- 
vanced most. However, our pupils have been well supplied 
thus far with working material. - 

Of no small import is the adoption of Rules and By-Laws 
by the school committee early in the school year. These ex- 
plicitly define the duties and requirements of all parties con- 
nected with the public schools, and are in accord with state 
laws and the recommendation of the Board of Education. 



11 

They are embraced under the following heads: 

I. Organization and Meetings; II. Duties of Officers; 
III. School Terms, Vacations and Holidays; IV. Salaries; 
V. Tuition; VI. Miscellaneous; VII. Duties of Superintendent; 
VIII. Duties of Teachers; IX. Duties of Pupils; X. Duties 
of Janitors; XL Rules for Transportation. 

Many questions are arising, or may arise, from time to 
time as to what step shall be taken in a given case. The by-laws 
of the school department form the most convenient and cer- 
tain source to answer these questions. The main items 
of common law, as applied to school customs and management 
are simply put into statements. Some new principles and ex- 
pression of school policy are also embodied. 

The salaries of teachers are made to conform to a schedule 
which recognizes the preparation of the teachers for their work, 
previous experience, and general excellence. The standard re- 
quirements of new -teachers are raised. 

The required work of pupils is defined and some important 
methods of discipline are specified. The general object has 
been to fix responsibility upon the proper party and to hold 
that party alone responsible for action and results. "Divided 
authority" has always been the source of weakness in any 
system intended to secure efficiency. 

In appreciation of the hearty co-operation of all connected 
with school work this report is 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES C. RICHARDSON, 

Superintendent.

Report of Supervisor of Drawing 



MR. CHARLES RICHARDSON, Superintendent of. Schools: 

Dear Sir:- 

I herewith submit my annual report. 

Few changes have been made in the Art Course this year. 

The course in Representative Drawing as advocated by 
the State Normal School will receive some attention in the 
lower grades and df continued next year in the higher grades, 
should develop in the pupils a greater power of self-expression. 

The new teachers in Dana Center and North Dana have 
taken up the work in an efficient manner. Better work is being 
done in Dana Center district, owing to the division into primary 
and grammar schools, as individual instruction can thus be 
given. 

Allow me to quote from a bulletin published by the United 
States Bureau of Education in regard to the value of Art Edu- 
cation in the public schools. 

"Drawing today is but one chapter in the great volume 
which is being compiled in our public school courses of study. 
We may name this volume Art Education. 



13 

It is true that art instruction must teach children to draw. 
It must do this for the same reason that instruction in 
reading must teach children to recognize and form written 
words, to combine words in sentences and to compose sentences 
in paragraphs for the expression of thought. 

There is another result as much greater in value to the 
average man as the ability to enjoy good literature is greater 
than the ability to use grammatical speech, and that result is 
the ability to perceive and enjoy beauty wherever beauty is 
manifested. It is in its power to stimulate good taste and 
to open the gate of appreciation that art education justifies 
the time and money spent upon it." 

In closing I wish to express my thanks to superintendent 
and teachers for their interest and helpfulness. 

Respectfully, 

L. FLORENCE ROGAN, 

Supervisor of Drawing.

Report of Music Supervisor 



MR. CHARLES C. RICHARDSON, Superintendent of Schools: 
Dana, Mass. 

In compliance with your request I herewith submit my 
first report as supervisor of music in the schools of Dana. 

As I was more familiar with the work of fully graded schools 
I was unusually surprised to find such a good musical foundation 
begun in the but partially graded schools here. I was much 
pleased to find all the up-to-date methods of the New Educa- 
tional System already employed. 

During the Fall term the greater part of the music time 
was spent in singing, learning to read accurately and rapidly 
at sight, and to sing with expression. I wish to emphasize the 
importance of individual work, preferably by use of the Weber 
graded slips, with which the schools are supplied. The quality 
of tone has improved and we are troubled with monotones only 
in the primary grades. 

If there be any weak point in the school music, it is in 
the technicalities of music and upon such shall the work of 
the Winter term be based. During the Spring term more time 
will be given to details of expression, learning to follow the 
baton and to a brief outline of Musical History. These several 



15 

phases of music aid music appreciation. In general great prog- 
ress in the music of the schools is inevitable. 

I sincerely thank the teachers and the superintendent 
for their prompt co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

RUTH C. SPRAGUE, 

Supervisor of Music.

School Physician's Report 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1916. 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF DANA:— 

The first part of our school year was unattended with 
sickness sufficient to absent many of the scholars from school 
more than a day or two at a time, save in two or three cases. 

The last half of the school year we were visited with an 
endemic of varicella, which absented quite a number of scholars 
from school for several days, also we had several cases of ton- 
silitis, one of scarlatina. 

At the commencement of the last half of the year we were 
ordered by the State Commissioner of Education to examine 
each scholar on the first day of the school and visit every school 
every day thereafter because of the prevalence of infantile 
paralysis through the state; this we did until we did not deem 
it necessary to longer continue our visits. 

STEPHEN WITT.
